Somewhere along life’s journey, Mary Jane Paul [like so many Black women] got the message that the needs of others should be prioritized over hers. She went from one unhealthy relationship to the next giving others the very things she was lacking in her life.
In today’s episode, Shirl and Natty peel back more layers of Mary Jane Paul in an effort to determine what her kryptonite is.
Just knowing what you know of Mary Jane Paul, what do you think her kryptonite (the thing that weakens her) is? The desire to be wanted? The need to be nurtured? Trouble saying no? Being loved bombed by the men in her life? Tap in to hear what Shirl and Natty think.
When you’re finished, hop over to the Shades of Strong Facebook Community and let them know if you agree. The Facebook community is a safe space where you can connect with other Black women and have open and honest discussions about things that concern us individually and collectively. This is a safe space where we can lean on each other in times of trouble and unrest, and dance with each other in times of celebration.
